This futuristic skateboard puts us one step closer to real hoverboards

We might not quite be at real hoverboards just yet, but the Halo Board is getting us closer.

This futuristic skateboard uses a gyroscopic self-balancing design to stay level with minimal effort. What does that mean? No wipeouts, sure, but even better, no pushing. That’s right, you can ride for 10 MPH for up to 10 miles just by stepping on and leaning in.

Voted as the “Best Electric Skateboard of 2017,” the Halo Board even plays your favorite music using Bluetooth. And it’s far safer than exploding hoverboards, passing a 156-point safety inspection. It also has built-in LED lights for safe nighttime riding.

It’s not quite the same as flying — but it’s really, really close. Get the official Halo Board from the Daily Dot store for $697. That’s 30 percent off the retail price of $997, with free shipping included.
